About Us

Our Approach

We are systemic therapists, which means we believe that getting to know our clients' context and worldview is the key to providing effective clinical care.

Relationships, identity and culture matter. Our clients don't exist in a vacuum, and we look to you as the expert in your own unique experiences and life history.

We are experts in mental, relational and emotional health. Together, we can co-create a space for healing, and develop a personalized action plan for you to find empowerment in your life and relationships. Whether you are looking for a safe space for yourself, your child, you and your partner, or your whole family, we are here to listen to and amplify every voice.

Our Story

Emerald City Sanctuary (ECS) is a collaborative group practice of mental health professionals dedicated to systemic treatment. Many traditional private practices feature lone or loosely associated practitioners, and ECS was formed to create a space for therapists to be stronger and more effective together. We support one another in keeping up-to-date with the most cutting edge, evidence-based techniques in the psychotherapy industry, so that we can provide the highest quality clinical care for you, our valued clients.
